How do meals get paid for? Do all the guys chip in, or is there petty cash for this?

One truck does the shopping and everyone ponies up for the bill after the meal. Prices vary from $3.00 to 7.00 (this is usually steak dinner).

Brunch on weekends and dinners every night shift, everyone that eats chips in. Our kitchen is going to be torn apart in a couple of weeks for some much needed renovations, I am thinking that a lot of take out will be ordered in the weeks to come.

The bill came due!!

We received the bill from Timmies a while back for 3 days of "rehab" supplies we used up at a school explosion earlier in the year---$2,500.00 :o

Honest---we were working at this one!!

I've always wondered...if 3/4 of the guys/gals on shift are pitching in for a meal and there is a probie on shift too, but he eats his packed lunch, is he to do the cooking and dishes?

Usually the meal is about the whole crew, a smart probie would never go on his own for a meal!
It’s not unusual to see probies make coffee even though they don’t drink it.
The goal should be when you first join your crew is to fit in and to prove you are a team player.
Sometimes you might have to do some grunt jobs you don’t like, however your day will come when you get to pass the lousy jobs off to the next probie.

Great advice Old Boot, this is not taught at pre-service or college and is invaluable advice for the probies trying to fit in! :top:
